zelda, gundam wing, final fantasy, pokemanz, etc... I'll have to post pictures, I am very proud of my collection (however small). it started when the ganon, zelda/impa, and link figurines came out that had the steeds with them. only the zelda/impa one was sold in my area, though. ;---;
Depends on the figurines. I have a cute panda one that doubles as a bamboo pot and a little Mario Mushroom that holds but like, some candies, but yeah. So I guess I usually pick something up if I think it's useful.
